republican in big elections. >> host: snapshot of pennsylvania, it's 20 electoral votes. back in 2008 barack obama winning by ten percentage points. unemployment in the state essentially mirroring what we have nation wild, 8.2% -- nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting an awful lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes. what is so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground than pennsylvania at least at the moment? >> guest: yeah. yeah, well, the essential difference is that ohio has a good many be more sort of moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats have done well is they've captured the suburbs of our state in these last, in the presidential elections in recent years, and that's been the defining difference. you've got that big swath of in the middle of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area there. obviously, with the cleveland area up in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and the
's longer than that, if cleanup stretches in closer to election day. but, again, this impact is potentially on early voting is an issue. that's something the obama team thinks favors them in a state like virginia. we just have to wait and see. >> who do you have joining you on the program? >> we have the governor of ohio, john casic, governor of wisconsin, surprisingly close, scott walker and colorado, very close. the democratic governor of that state as well. rachel maddow is on our roundtable and chuck todd with the latest maps and what to look for on election day. >> thank you very much. >>> the "today" show will broadcast live from the university of richmond as they talk with undecided voters whose attention the candidates are trying to capture. watch lester holt's report live coming up this morning at 8:00 right here on nbc 4. >>> we want to turn our attention back to hurricane sandy now. let's check in with meteorologist tom kierein. >> coming up, the latest track on sandy. just released about an hour or so ago. we'll take a look at the threat for our area and give you all the details
important election of our lifetime. people feel that way because the one that you're in. i do think that obama's victory could create a major ideological shift in the country. and obama's losing could have something to do with where we were a decade ago. it can be very unique and very promising. we could be doing some major advancement that would be great for the environment. obviously, the youth vote is very critical. it is also very unusual that people care so much. [inaudible] so you are lucky and blessed to be listening to and to be part of this election. >> tim? >> though, i wanted people to step up a little bit. we talked about fiscally conservative people, and i would like to see some socially liberal liberals. we didn't get into the juggler or civil liberties were a bunch of other things. and i would like to see something from the left. as far as i can see, we have gone butkus on all those issues. every couple of years, there is a big debate that are held in some false. a connection between libertarians and conservatives, is coming to an end? my friend, jonah goldberg, says
a supply store -- surprise or two on election night. what do you look for? >> pennsylvania is a state that we did not look at as competitive. bob casey was caught sleeping. he did not take this race seriously. i think obama still has a narrow edge. i think casey will pull this out. democrats have had to go in and help him. what we are looking for, if scott brown does not pull it out in massachusetts early on, and tim kaine slightly has an edge in virginia, it becomes difficult for republicans. republicans would be happy for a win at 3. democrats have good candidates. even if they fall short in places like arizona and north dakota, they have made these republicans spend money. >> thank you very much. >> now from maine, a debate among candidates for the senate seat. this hourlong debate is brought to us by wmtw tv in portland, maine. >> in the next hour, you will hear from six candidates who want to represent the maine in the senate. i want to give you a quick word about our format tonight. the questions come from our editorial board and viewers and e-mails. we want to hear from you. >>
seems to have died out. it's left him in a very competitive position. he could win the election. but he may need a little bit of push by the end. and then the other thing that people talk about is the idea that president obama can showrd shal leadership and he's helping people, using fema and other tools of the administration. i'm kind of skeptical of that because i think people understand that that's a president's job. i don't see the president getting much mileage out of that. but who knows. >> this is a random question. if the election were held tomorrow, would they ever cancel or delay the actual election itself due to weather,s that that ever happened? >> not to my knowledge. i think it would be very, very difficult to do. but, you know, stranger things have happened. i'm not aware that that's ever happened. i mean, it certainly happened in particular jurisdictions. you remember in 9/11, they moved the mayoral election in new york city. so certainly there's press department for in the catastrophic circumstance moving the date, but i've never seen that in a presidential election and
today in florida, but president obama will focus for one more day fully on sandy recovery efforts. he'll get that firsthand look of the jersey shore and the damage there later today. election day may be six days away, but the president appears to believe the best politics, stay off the campaign trail. today it's storm-ravaged new jersey. tuesday red cross headquarters. >> my message to the federal government. no bureaucracy, no red tape, get resources where they are needed as fast as possible. >> reporter: mitt romney also suspended campaigning tuesday but still traveled to the battleground state of ohio to encourage donations to the red cross. >> i appreciate the fact that people right here in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store i see and purchased some things that these families will need. >> reporter: governor romney is back campaigning today holding three rallies across florida. but the president remains in disaster response mode. he'll survey storm damage with new jersey's republican governor chris christ yeempt among issues christie plans to bring up, how

. this is not good news for obama. >> let's put something in perspective. florida and colorado have already had republican edges in early voting number one. pennsylvania as well, i might point out because democrats vote more on election today. in ohio it's not even close, in terms of where those absentee ballots, or the early vote ballots are. bill: andrea's big point is that it's a 22 point swing. >> it's a meaningless number, it's a meaningless number. 22 point swing for what? you're talking about from 2008 to 2012. you're talking about a number of days for early voting to take place. you don't know how many people are going to vote between now and next tuesday. bill: what about that andrea. >> i can answer that very easily. look at the gallup number overall among likely registered voters who will vote november 6th. romney leads those by five points, bob. >> it's not five points. that number collapsed down. the polls, all this big momentum you've been trying to sell isn't selling any more, the numbers are collapsed down on most all these folks including the gallup tracking poll. bill: go ahea

: many more people have been taking a very quick look at obama's first term. >> election day is just around the corner there's no time to waste. there are only nanny sections to let people know what president obama has done for the countries. the first bill he signed was the lilly ledbetter restoration act. and 3.1 million more young adults have insurance, and seniors that were in the doughnut hole now have help. we have wall street reform student loan reform you can get some major bang for your buck when it comes to college. he expanded the post gi bill because if you are fighting for your country, you should not have to come home and fight for a job. we all know what hand to osama bin laden. talk about building an economy where everybody has shoot at success, and he saved more than a million jobs in the auto industry. he developed fuel efficiencies that will clean our skies, and save families at the pump and families will save an extra thousand dollars for families to spending on whatever. start by visiting barack if this is what this guy can do i

of the rumors about when or if talks are commenced after obama presumably is re-elected, what would be on the agenda? the united states is pushing to have that agenda be focused only on the nuclear issue, only on the nuclear issue. that's a mistake. because as ken rightly pointed out, iran is listed here as a state sponsor of terrorism. there are all sorts of human rights and other concerns, whatever iran would give occupant nuclear issue, yes, there may be a deal if we can accept iran's right to enrich uranium on its own territory, but that deal is going to be fragile if we continue to press iran on all of these other issues, and there's no accommodation, there's no strategic agreement, no strategic understanding on the range of issues. so the agenda must be broad, the agenda must address the range of issues that bedevil the u.s.-iranian relationship. with that, there has to be a demonstration of u.s. seriousness. now, we often fall back on our grievances, the concerns, real and imagined, that we have with the islamic republic, and some of them are very real. i'm not manipulate miz
question about president obama. do you believe that if he's reelected he will approve the northern portion? >> i think he's always been planning to. he put it off because he knew elections were coming up and obviously thousands of people got arrested voluntarily in front of the white house. the white house was surrounded by people a few weeks later in protest of this pipeline. people realize that water and our uncontaminated water soil and food, the aquifer serves for water a third of our nation's ranch and farmlands. if that is contaminated, we are screwed, so he kind of just pushed it aside and said you know what, we're going to postpone that until we review. he was hitting a wall against republicans, democrats tea party saying no, it's not going through. he quickly quietly fast tracked the southern leg. when i was arrested, people were shocked to know that the key stone was already going in. >> cenk: he's definitely going to approve it. i agree with you. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> cenk: when we come back, we've got the elbow of the day. it's fun and landing right on repu
obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and mayors deal with the storm until it got closer to hitting the coastal areas along the washington, d.c., new york city corridor. well, we wanted to invite michael brown on the show here to have him explain that comment a little bit more. he's joining us now. he's cohost with david sirota in denver the cohost a.m. 630khow in denver, the station they're on. michael brown, thank you so much for joining us. >> my pleasure. how are you guys doing? >> cenk: great. so, michael, of course, everybody is wondering about this comment. what in the world do you mean that president obama moved too fast in this case to deal with this storm? >> there's really no explaining because -- the article
and i tell you the minute he's elected--not the minute, i like to be accurate--but when he's re-elected he'll approve the northern half as well. and of course he brags how he has done more drilling than george w. bush. which is true. now here is president obama talking about in the second presidential debate about how great he is at oil drilling. >> obama: we have increased oil production to the highest levels in 16 years. natural gas production is the highest it's been in decades. we have seen increases in coal production. >> romney: more drilling, more permits and licenses. >> obama: yes, we still continue to open up new areas of drilling. we continue to make it a priority for us to go after natural gas. >> romney: we're going to bring that pipeline in from canada. how in the world the president said no to that pipeline, i will never know. >> obama: we have opened up public plans. we're drilling more on public lands than the previous administration and the previous president was an oil man. >> romney: more drilling and more permits and licenses. >> obama: we made the largest investmen
you. thank you. >> rachel, thank you for coming. in the years leading up to the presidential election the focus seemed to be on barack obama's roots and his family and the fact that he wrote his own biography. but, now in your book, "american tapestry," you put the focus on michelle obama. tell us about how you got started doing that and what inspired you. >> i was writing about the first lady and the first family for "the new york times," which was something of an unusual assignment. typically the first family is covered by the white house reporters who chase the president around on air force one and in the briefing room and write about the first lady in the first family when they have time. but there was a sense in 2008 at "the new york times" and other newspapers too that we might want to do things a little bit differently. and this family, this first african-american family living in this house, this white house billed in part by slave labor, with slave labor, would be written about for generations to come and we wanted to be a part of documenting and chronicling that story. and i
